REPORT 

OF THE 

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



The undersigned Cemetery Committee, chosen July 6th, 
1869, respectfully report that at a Town Meeting, held May 
2d, 1871, the following resolution and votes were passed. 

Resolved, That the votes of the Town heretofore passed, 
setting apart a portion of the Town land and certain ad- 
ditions to be purchased of Messrs Flint and Foster for a 
Cemetery be, and are hereby, rescinded. 

Voted, That the Cemetery Committee be authorized to 
purchase of John H. Flint et als., their lot of forty-one acres, 
more or less, situated on the east side of the old road leading 
to Ballard Yale, for a sum not exceeding three thousand 
dollars, and that the same be dedicated to the purposes of 
a Cemetery, and be improved by the Committee for that 
purpose. 

Voted, That all sums of money heretofore voted, by the 
Town for the improvement of the " Carmel Hill " lot, be 
transferred and expended in the improvement of the new lot 
this day designated for a Cemetery ; and that the Selectmen 
be autborized and directed to draw their warrant on the 
Town Treasurer for a sum not exceeding four thousand 
dollars, to pay for the above-named land, and the improve- 
ments to be made upon it, when requested so to do by the 
Committee. 

In accordance with the authority and instruction given us 
by the foregoing votes, the Committee purchased of John H. 
Flint and others, the lot of land referred to, consisting of 
forty-one acres, for three thousand dollars. They then com- 
menced improvements, by laying out the grounds, making 



36 

avenues sixteen feet wide and paths nine feet wide, the length 
of both being about half a mile. The soil, to the depth of 
eight inches, was taken out, and gravel put in ; the old rail- 
road track has been cleared of brush, and the lower parts of 
it filled up. Nearly three hundred feet of wail on the eastern 
side of said track have been re-set, draining laid, and the 
underbrush cleared from three fourths of the premises west 
of the track. A portion of the land has been laid out into 
nearly one hundred lots, of various sizes, so arranged as to 
leave ample space in front, rear, and sides of the lots. 

At a Town Meeting held August 7th, 1871, By-Laws, Rules, 
and Regulations for the proper care, improvement, and pro- 
tection of said Cemetery were passed. The first section 
reads as follows : " The location selected and purchased by the 
Cemetery Committee under the authority of the vote of the 
Town of Andover shall be designated and known as ' Spring 
Grove Cemetery.' " A part of the seventh section is as 
follows : " It shall be the duty of said Committee to submit 
annually a written Report of their doings, comprising a state- 
ment of all monies received and expended on account of said 
Cemetery, which Report shall be printed in connection with 
the Auditors' annual Report." 

The Grove was formally dedicated, October loth 1871, and 
a very able and interesting address was delivered on the 
occasion by Rev. William E. Park, of Lawrence, a native of 
this town. A few days subsequently the choice of lots was 
offered at auction, and several were taken. The number 
selected by parties is eleven, and the deeds of conveyance of 
five have been passed. 

Amount received from the Town Treasurer, $4000 00 

Amount received for lots, 100 00

In hands of Committee, 37

There are now outstanding bills against the Committee 
amounting to about one hundred and thirty dollars. It will 
be necessary the ensuing year to lay out and improve other 
portions of the land ; cut a head avenue, procure and erect 
stone posts and gates ; trim up the grove ; set out ornamental 
trees, build wing walls, and repair fences. The Committee, 
therefore, recommend that the Town make an appropria- 
tion, not exceeding two thousand dollars, for the purposes 
indicated.

it The foregoing Accounts having been carefully examined, and found 
to have been correctly kept and well vouched, we respectfully present, our 
Report to the Town for acceptance. In taking the inventory of the per- 
sonal property at the Almshouse the Auditors noticed the need of painting 
and papering the rooms, and that there is a deficiency of furniture in the 
house. An expenditure for these purposes seem to be desirable.
